The 2025 Switch-Off: Embracing the Future of Telecommunications

Category: Tech News, Telephony

In the coming years, the telecommunications landscape will undergo a significant transformation as traditional ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network) and PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network) services are phased out. Here we aim to shed light on why this transition is happening, what actions you need to take, and explores the exciting alternative solutions available to you.

Evolution in Communication

The telecommunication industry is evolving at an unprecedented pace, and the ISDN and PSTN networks, which have served us well for decades, are no longer capable of meeting the demands of today’s digital world.

The need for faster, more versatile, and cost-effective communication solutions has led to the decision to switch off ISDN and PSTN services. This change paves the way for modern alternatives that will improve the way we connect and collaborate.

Preparing for the Switch-Off

As the ISDN and PSTN switch-off approaches, we’re here to proactively work with you to ensure a smooth transition. Here are some essential actions that we can support you with to make the change seamless:

1. Assess your current infrastructure: Understand how ISDN and PSTN services are currently integrated into your communication infrastructure.
2. Explore options: Research communication solutions available in the market.
3. Plan for migration: Develop a migration strategy, including timelines, budget, and resource allocation.
4. Make the change: Collaborate with us to guide you through the transition process.

Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP)

Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is a revolutionary technology that uses the internet to transmit voice communications. It offers great flexibility, scalability, and cost-effectiveness compared to traditional phone systems. With VoIP, you can make calls from any internet-connected device, enjoy rich collaboration features, and integrate seamlessly with other communication tools.

Cloud Phone Systems

Cloud phone systems leverage the power of the cloud to deliver advanced communication capabilities.

By moving your telephony infrastructure to the cloud, you and your colleagues gain the freedom to work from anywhere, enjoy automatic updates and support, and integrate with other cloud-based services effortlessly.

Mobile Solutions and SIP Trunking

In a world where remote working and mobility are becoming the norm, mobile solutions and SIP trunking take communication further. Mobile solutions empower you to stay connected using your smartphone, ensuring uninterrupted business communication even on the go. On the other hand, SIP trunking enables businesses to connect their PBX systems to the internet, delivering the benefits of VoIP without fully abandoning existing infrastructure.
